Great Toy — My truck was great! i beat the tar out of it!!! got it stuck 2 times in some pretty nasty stuff! suspension sucked! 6in of leaf springs is a rough ride... did great in hill climbs and could pull anyone out of a ditch!

Pros: over all the truck was tons of fun but not a daily driver had a 20 gal tank that got filled every 2 days! great toy!

Cons: Fuel economy!

Decent But Not Perfect — good looks good power Id buy another one if i had the money to do so this was my first truck i still have it and im trying to resore it more for sentimental value than anything im more of a dodge person but i love this truck

Pros: I personally love short wheelbase pickups. This one has a fair deal of power.

Cons: Ive had one major problem with this truck commonly known as too many mechanics.

Title? Say What? —

It is a 1983 Chevrolet K/10 Pickup. Single cab, long bed, 4X4, 4 speed balanced auto transmission. Limited slip rear differential, Recently rebuilt. $3,200 miles on rebuilt. new aluminum pistons, moly coated piston rings, 437 corvette racing heads, Torque camshaft, long tube headers, true dual sportside exhaust, 2 26" straight thought glasspacks, Totally rebuilt 750CFm 4BBL quadrajet carburator, 1" phonic carburator space, 8.0MM Racing spark plug wires, competition spark plugs, High capacity distibutor cap, 55,000V ingition coil, 4x14" air filter, 14" chrome air filter assembly, 135apm altenator, high flow cast iron water pump, compete engine gasket set, chrome timing set, chrome valve covers/breather/bolts/hold down tabs, 7 blade flex fan, synthetic primary and secondary belts, high flow oil pick up. New rhino lined rims, 9X28" tires, rhino lined bed rail caps/side running boards/tailgate protector, rear bumper, front bumper/grill guard/exhaust tips. Painted front grill/blinkers/rear taillight trim/rear window trim/door water guards. MPG is about 5 in town ant 7 on the highway(due to the 750CFM carb). Maintance is VERY often. Oil is ALWAY full synthetic, just doesnt run right without it. Usually super unleaded with octan booster. The engine produces enough instant torque to flex the motor in the engine bay and flex the fron end of the truck fron left to right. When I have it on LOW idol, the hood wil shake back and forth while it is open, and the exhaust tipes will push in every time their is a exhaust throw out. Will spin tires in 1st gear at 40MPH(at the end of 1st geat), until 55MPH(about 1/4 way thought second). L-O-U-D! No radio...but who needs it when you wont be able to hear it anyways... I would totally recommend this truck to a friend. Loud, fast, ranch truck look. What else could you want in a truck? It has more torque than horsepower. Will burnout, will spin both tires on a stoplight take off. People look when you drive by, 60% of them look while I am going 40 and holding it in 2nd gear, ALL of the look when I am driving 35 and holding it in 1st. Some cover their ears when I am going 40 holding it in 1st.

Pros: Performance, sound, speed.

Cons: Cancer above the wheel wells, and some in the rear bumper.

My Baby! — My dad bought this truck in 1994, and gave it to me in 2005. It breaks down a lot and has lots of issues, but it's old. All old cars have issues. I would not recommend it to a friend, because none of my friends would know how to drive it.

Pros: Cool, gets lots of compliments

Cons: Has "old car issues", bad gas mileage

$10500 — By far this is the most fun vehicle i have ever driven in my life. It takes a lot of work to keep it as nice as it is. But its so worth the time. what more could you ask for. 19k miles science new + 450hp = one badass truck.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: greatest most reliable trucks on the road

Cons: gas miles but who really cares about that.
